ASU-TV to host new game show, 'ASU Trivia Challenge'
ASU-TV, the student-run cable station (channel 18 of the Suddenlink cable system) of Arkansas State University, serving Jonesboro and Bay, is hosting a game show, "ASU Trivia Challenge." A pop culture game show, the challenge will test teams from various student organizations over three nights. The tournament taping will take place Sunday-Tuesday, March 11-13, and the show will air Monday, April 2, at 10 p.m. "ASU Trivia Challenge" represents a completely different type of production for radio-TV students, and it has provided a complex and challenging learning experience. The production was undertaken for the express purpose of promoting the station, and the show was entirely planned, designed, and produced by students over the course of eight months. To register, interested student organizations should pick up forms at the ASU Student Information Booth on the second floor of the Student Union and return forms to the ASU-TV mailbox, located in room 152 on the first floor of the Education/Communications building. The registration must be filed with ASU-TV no later than 5 p.m. today. For more information, e-mail
